WE all think we know it all .... or that who we think knows it all, knows it all.
Let's face it - we Americans are ALL a bunch of know-it-alls!
But then sooner or later we must face reality. We don't and least of all do politicians know it all!
America is unquestionably in decline. The planet itself is in decline as well. That is not a coincidence.
America's footprint on earth has been and is enormous when compared to other nations.
The problems we face today have been festering for generations. The industrial revolution has burnt out the planet earth for short terms gains, leaving behind a polluted planet with growing piles of garbage.
Now we must soon pay the price or change our ways.
Some of the very few who have amassed all the power and wealth understand what they have done wrong ... like Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.
Others want the mass of humanity to pay for their transgressions against nature and humanity.
These plutocrats continue to focus on maintaining power and increasing short term profits as opposed to investing in the welfare of all human beings Americans are merely symptomatic of a larger problem that is approaching our shores.
We Americans sometimes need to be reminded that we are humans first and foremost and exclusively.
Not Americans or even men or women ... but human beings - members of a species of mammals living on earth.
A species that is destroying itself and the planet that keeps all life alive!
